Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep


Now I lay me down to sleep

Now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

If I should die before I wake,

I pray the Lord my soul to take.

God bless Mommy, Daddy, Janae, Preston…

Remember that poem?

I am repeating it now

Because I need sleep

Phones ringing

Deliveries made

Restless mind wondering

Al came home tonight

Tremors followed                                                                     newborn

Tears right behind

Dear Lord

Please let me

Lay down to sleep

If you want to take my soul

Then please do it while

My eyes are closed

Just do me one favor God

Take care of Al for me.

  1. For Terry- A Dear Friend

    Sleep if you must my friend
    There’s so much more to mend
    Wake up if you must get erect
    There’s so much more to correct

    Sleep if you must my friend
    And do your chores to blend
    While others may not have noticed
    You keep moving as you are enticed

    Sleep if you must my friend
    Everything has its start and end
    And God knows when it’s forthright
    He always makes everything right

    • Maxim, this touched my heart. It is beautiful. I did manage to get a fifteen minute cat nap before I heard Al’s bell. I pray he sleeps tonight or I will fall asleep changing his brief. Thank you so much my dear friend. big hugs
